Me thinks his truck is a little small for pulling his 5ver. What say you Ken?

New Rig

Congratulations on your new 5er ! - if you would like to purchase a weight scale to measure the pin weight www.sherline.com makes small hydraulic estimating scales to measure trailer tongue and 5th wheel pin weights - click on their 'Other Products' link at the top and they are in section 3 - they are reasonably priced and you can make an inexpensive stand to mount them on for any trailer tongue or 5th wheel pin- they also have a trailer towing guide.

Wow! Your new rig is awesome! We moved up from a 30 ft Jayco 5ver two years ago to our DP, but boy after seeing your new rig it could make me reconsider! Very impressive. Enjoy!
